Ok I will be there. But it seems that Unexpect won't be playing the Helsinki gig. They will be there for the rest of the tour though.

Well it was quite amazing. I only caught the last 2 songs of Bigelf, but they were a huge surprise, i bet their psychedelic 70s-vibed hard rock/heavy metal was actually the freshest thing this evening considering we all know what to expect from Opeth and DT.
Opeth was as perfect though as they were in Tallinn 7 months ago when I first saw them, and we were treated with 3 songs that never been played live before, so a pleasing set definately.
I saw Dream Theater for the first time and well I still kinda knew what I was going to get. Everything was polished close to perfection performance-wise, but no surprises whatsoever, and the computer-graphic visuals on screens were quite awful. I still enjoyed the set very much and left the arena with extreme satisfaction

Opeth setlist:
The Lotus Eater
Reverie/Harlequin Forest
White Cluster
Hex Omega

Dream Theater setlist:
A Nightmare To Remember
A Rite Of Passage
Hollow Years
The Spirit Carries On
As I Am
The Count Of Tuscany
oh my fucking god, fucking dinosaurs
